Location: Mitsubishi Electric Research Lab, 201 Broadway, Cambridge, MA 02139

Date: October 8, 2018

The following two free workshops will be offered at the American Modelica Conference:

  • Introduction to Modeling with Modelica: 08:30 am - 12:30 pm, provided by Modelon

    This workshop will give an introduction to Modelica. We will be presenting the principles of modeling with Modelica and efficient use of model libraries using various multi-domain examples selected to make the workshop attractive for engineers from all branches of engineering.

  • Thermo-fluid Modeling with Applications from the Buildings Library:: 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm, provided by Michael Wetter (LBNL)

    This workshop will give an introduction into modeling of thermo-fluid systems and their control, using Modelon’s latest graphical editor. We will be using applications from the Buildings library, but the course will be structured to also appeal to modelers from other application domains that are concerned with thermo-fluid systems.

    After an introductory presentation that discusses the scope of the Modelica Buildings Library, how to set up thermofluid flow models and how to avoid potential problems, participants will conduct hands-on exercises. As part of the exercises, we will build models of simple heating and air conditioning systems, link them to a thermal load and add feedback control. The models will be built using components from the Buildings library.

    Participants are expected to have either basic knowledge of Modelica, or have attended the morning workshop.
